Join us at the Barbican in London this June

With a conference for every level of engineering leadership, find a community that will help you reach your career goals.

To be a successful female engineer you have to be strategic about your career which is something we are not taught in computer science and/or engineering academia. It may be tough, but it’s not impossible to find a company where women’s voices are important. Make that your goal. Build relationships with colleagues, upper management, and across departments early in your career. Look for mentors. Pair with senior and diverse engineers who are open to teaching. Take each opportunity as a learning lesson. Direct your career towards your own interests; you will thrive when you are doing what you enjoy. Though you may face challenges, and at times failures, if you are confident on your path you will persevere.
